I am facing problem on my Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire VXI (2016).
Power steering of my car seems to be very dull and lifeless. This happens atleast 90% of the time and sometimes surprisingly it works smooth and refined like its working for a short period of time and later on again it becomes dull and bit hard.
Now what I mean by dull is that it gets quite hard (imagine driving on almost flat front tyres). Mind you it is still not heavy like Maruti 800 but you can very easily feel that power loss.
By lifeless I mean that it doesn't provide me any feedback of the road. It's kind of glued to road feel....hard to explain.
I have been keeping tyre pressure at 32 on all four which is recommended by Maruti but still the problem persists.
It's so sad that the engine is so smooth and refined but I am not getting any driving pleasure due to this hopeless steering.
Worst thing is that MASS says that all is fine. She behaves quite ok when I take her to MASS.....
What shall be the actual reason behind it?
Admin Accepted Answer

Did the workshop checked Power Steering Fluid levels ?
Is the tension checked on the drive Belt ?

If both above been checked, then suggest to get steering rack checked, could likely be an issue in it
If car under warranty - suggest to refer mail to Maruti Suzuki customer care for the fault and also get car thoroughly assessed from workshop

Hope should help !!
